When is the Australian Legal Research Awards deadline?
All applications and nominations for the 2022 ALRA Awards are due by close of business (5pm AWST) on Wednesday 2 March, 2022.
How many awards categories are there?
There are five categories in 2022:
- PhD Award
- Article/Chapter (ECR) Award
- Article/Chapter (General) Award
- Book Award
- Non-Traditional Research Output (NTRO) Award
A Lifetime Achievement Legal Research Medal will also be awarded.
Where are the application forms?
Application forms are on each award webpage. This year the forms are online; there is no need to print anything out.
Can I apply in more than one category (e.g. for different outputs or co-authored works)?
The requirement this year is that you can only apply in one category in total, so you cannot apply in two separate categories for two different outputs. We acknowledge this does make for some hard choices, particularly when it comes to co-authored outputs, but the idea is to ensure that you pick the output that you are most keen to submit.
What are the eligibility requirements for the awards?
Each award webpage lists the eligibility requirements for the respective award.
Does my Associate Dean of Research need to do anything?
Yes; after an applicant completes an application form, the respective ADR must complete the corresponding nomination form. These are available on each award webpage.
Where can I see the past award winners?
View the 2020 award winners and ceremony online.
Where will the awards be awarded?
The 2022 Awards will be awarded at the annual conference of the Australasian Law Academics Association (‘AALA’).
